About the presenter
John FP Bridges PhD is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) at The
Ohio State University (OSU) College of Medicine. An economist by training, he has devoted his
career to advancing and applying theory-driven methods to understand the preferences and
priorities of patients and other stakeholders in medicine. John was the founding editor of The
Patient – Patient-centered Outcomes Research journal, and founding chair of numerous
patient-centered working groups, special interest groups, and task forces within the
International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR), the last of which
published a new Roadmap for increasing the usefulness and impact of studies of patient preferences.
He has received the ISPOR Bernie O’Brien New Investigator Award (2006) and the ISPOR
Distinguished Service Award (2011). The author of over 250 peer-reviewed publications, he is
frequently engaged as an expert on methods for measuring patient preferences and their
application in a wide variety of fields, including regulatory science, cancer control, public health, and
genetics. His current research on the clinical application of best-worst scaling is supported, in
part, by an Innovation in Regulatory Science Award from Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
Dr. Bridges invites anyone interested in discussing their research with him to stay afterward.
